He is the former keyboardist for the New Jersey band Pencey Prep, which he founded with Frank Iero and John McGuire. Following the band's break-up in 2002, he accompanied Way's band My Chemical Romance on tour. It was while on tour that many of the ideas for Killjoys took shape.  Dark Horse Comics announced at the 2009 San Diego Comic Con that The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys will be released as a six-issue series sometime in 2010.  The book will be drawn by artist Becky Cloonan and edited by Scott Allie.
